Good Helmet album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 01/05/2011 23:47:10
Seeing Eye Dog isn't Helmet's best album by a long shock but it does have some good stuff there too, and it also sees Page Hamilton try and expand the band's sound beyond their crunching metal songs.
Some of the really good tracks are the title track "Seeing eye dog" which is a good solid typical Helmet track. "In Person" which is about as close to a commercial single as they could put out, its also really good and almost could pass for a Foo Fighters track in places. "Miserable" is a very good cruncher of a track, and "White City" sees Page push the more melodic sound. But possibly the best track on the album is "LA Water" which really sees Helmet's sound move onto a more spatial almost cinematic sound, with orchestral strings in the background too. Some of the numbers are a bit too slow and sludgy sounding at times, and there is a pretty average and pointless cover of The Beatles "And your bird can sing" which hasn't really got much of a place on the album.
Overall though I quite liked Seeing Eye Dog, there's enough good tracks on it to give it a try. Mind you I'd rather give it a 3.5/5 instead if I could but its worth a listen.
